    Master product photographer Rick Levinson asked me if I'd be willing to bring my Model S into his studio so he could work his magic. His studio is in Burlington, Vermont — not exactly a hotbed for studio car photography. Just the fact that Rick's studio can accommodate a car is pretty impressive in these parts. (His usual clients include ski and snowboard companies, Ben & Jerry's, and a variety of other nationally known Vermont brands.)

    With the help of two assistants and a lot of digital know-how, a gorgeous portrait of my pearl white Model S has been captured. I was in charge of buffing and tire cleaning. Soon, I'll be posting a photo essay on the entire day-long process, and of course the finished photograph. It was all done just for fun, inspired by an object of beauty.

    Awesome, j/k! Not too long ago, we were the only state with more cows than people. On a more practical note, I'm happy to report that we have the cleanest electric grid in the U.S. No long tailpipe argument here.

    This will be my new favorite thread for a while, especially after that Cheshire Cat teaser!

    A ghost in the studio! Painting with light... and dark.
